Yoga means union, and in my opinion, it has a lot in common with playing a musical instrument or singing. Both can help you stay present in the moment, provide a meditative focus, utilize the breath, improve your mood, expand your awareness, and raise your consciousness. Both get you out of your head and into your heart. And if there’s one thing you can trust in this life, it’s your heart. I began practicing yoga asanas in the early 1990s, and received certification as a yoga instructor in 2010 through Nancy Ruby’s YogaMotion Academy. That said, I feel like I’ve been practicing yoga for as long as I’ve been practicing music.
Music and movement are in my blood. I have my parents to thank, as they not only gave me the genetics, but also provided me with lessons and made sure I practiced! I started playing piano at age 5, and my study of classical music continued through my senior year in high school. As a tween becoming a teen, I added percussion to the mix, learning how to play drums as well as the more melodious percussion instruments like xylophone, vibraphone, and marimba. I've been drumming in various ways ever since, and now share my fascination of rhythm and balance in drum circles, yoga practices, and wellness coaching.
My own struggles and triumphs with addiction, self-esteem, depression, and cancer led me from my past life of digging dinosaurs into the healing arts. As a wellness warrior, I depend upon mind-body practices such as yoga to release stress and feel more connected. And I love sharing the benefits I experience with others. I strive to create circles of wellness that have positive ripple effects into the rest of the world...through yoga, drumming, health coaching, and the occasional spontaneous dance party. My intention is to bring forward more peace, more passion, and more positivity. Hope to see you in a circle real soon!
